Wings fall in playoff opener

St. Peter 2-3 = 5
SJW 0-1 = 1

The St. James-Windom boys soccer team saw its inaugural season come to a close Thursday, as the team dropped a 5-1 decision at St. Peter in the opening round of the Section 2A playoffs.

St. Peter scored a pair of goals in rapid succession in the first half, then added a pair of goals early in the second half to take a 4-0 lead.

The Wings were able to apply some offensive pressure late in the contest, as sophomore Elder Gonzalez found the back of the net to give the Wings their first-ever playoff goal.

But the Saints tacked on another goal late in the game to advance to Saturday’s Section 2A semifinals.

St. Peter outshot the Wings 21-6 for the game. Goalie Omar Ambrocio finished with 16 saves.
